Man who tried to visit Fort Hood suspect released

Man who tried to visit Fort Hood suspect released

A man charged with falsely claiming to be the Fort Hood shooting suspect's attorney has been released from federal custody.
Senan Kahtan Abrahem was indicted on a federal charge of making a false statement after attempting to visit Maj. Nidal Hasan in a San Antonio military hospital. But U.S. Magistrate Judge John Primomo released him Monday on an unsecured bond after hearing he didn't harm anyone and has resumed bipolar disorder treatment.
Prosecutors oppose Abrahem's release, saying he could threaten witnesses.
Hasan's lawyer John Galligan says Abrahem has no connection to his client, who is charged with 13 murder counts in the November shooting.
Abrahem's attorney R. Clark Adams hasn't immediately returned a call from The Associated Press seeking comment.
